Reader Question Hi Austin,
I’m from Perth, Western Australia, but i think our cars work the same way over here.
Recently I had the a/c motor replaced in my car. but over the last week quite a lot of water has been leaking into the front passenger side of the car.
I understand that a leaking heater coil is probably responsible for this. What i didn’t know was that it would short out the a/c. Which is did this morning. What i want to know is, do you think the mechanic has any responsibility to re-repair the air conditioning?
Hey there Leanne
I would have your mechanic check to see if your A/C drain is stopped up with leaves and debris. This will cause cold clear A/C water to drain inside the vehicle on the passenger side.
If the water on the floor is green and oily feeling….it could be due to a leaking heater core, and you will be low on antifreeze inside the radiator, but I bet you have a restriction in the A/C drain…which can be easily cleaned with a shot of compressed air.
